It has arrived – That’s Normal!

Dear Twilight,

Are you like us? Is the internet more than just a place to Google how you spell Renesmee or tweet your Breaking Dawn Pt 2 predictions or find embarassing Robsten videos so you can post them on your friends Facebook wall? Yea, us too. Don’t get us wrong, we LOVE a good sepia toned video of TRUE love as much as the next Twi fan but we also love pondering the relationship status of Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes or discussing the how awesome/awful Hannah from Girls is and of course there’s nothing like Googling awful Games of Thrones fan art.

So yes, the time has come. Many have been asking, many have not been asking. No, we’re not talking about UC and my’s civil union ceremony.  We’re talking about our latest blogging venture. It’s called That’s Normal because as we’ve come to find out over the last almost 4 years (!!!) nothing we do is ever normal but we found people out there (YOU!) who like the same bizarro crap we do. So because of that and because we have so much more to talk about than just Twilight we are happy/excited/scared/ecstatic to announce our new blog –

That’s Normal!

Yup, you know why we chose that name, it all started here. That’s Normal is full of the same stuff you’ve come to love here at LTT and LTR but now we’re branching out into everything! TV, film, books, weird stuff on the interwebs, why that Carly Rae Jenson song is infectious and so annoying at the same time and pretty much everything else we find interesting.

We’re currently in the construction phase of the brand spanking new blog but you can find a taste of what’s to come over at our Tumblr.

Now does this mean we won’t be posting here on LTT? HALE to the nah. We still love you like that old lady secretary at work loves Fifty Shades of Grey. Ew. We’ll be writing letters to all things Twilight on Tuesdays and Thursdays and any other days that call for it (Taylor opening a martial arts studio called Face Punch).

We hope you’ll join us as we roll out this new chapter in blogging because we love ya so much and we knew we just couldn’t quit you!

That’s Normal (duh),
Moon & UC

    Thank you girls! That is so awesome! I was kind of worried how this would work out after BD2 – this just made my day!

  • Sisterpenguin

    Happy happy joy joy! You’ve made an old penguin dance again

  • Nelle

    Yes. Great news. I was worried about the future. What would I do with my mornings at work? What’s that you say? I could do work?

    And ladies- I want you to think back on this post when you’re 60 that you said “the old lady secretary reading 50 Shades of Gray. Ew.” It happens to all of us.

    • Bubs

      AMEN to the “It happens to all of us” Nelle. Someday these whipper snippers will understand

      • Sisterpenguin

        Ain’t that the truth. Excuse me, must attend to the support hose…

      • Sisterpenguin

        She asked me to bandage her ankles – only this time ‘do it tighter’ #50shadesofgran

    “We still love you like that old lady secretary at work loves Fifty Shades of Grey.”Hot. 

    Congrats on the new endeavor! 

  • JellyBeanRainbow

    Huge rock is falling of my chest right now. I imagined distant future where we only read your blogs about Rob ( not that’s anything wrong with him, it’s just not enough at some times when he’s not seen for weeks).
    It’s SO normal that you’re starting the other blog. Yay!

  • gizmo

    Great news! So excited to have a new online hangout.

  • Luludee

    You’ve just made my day! Our happy, normal community will flourish and grow, hurray! I had been wondering what would become of us.

  • Ashley Fragomeni

    Yay, congrats! Looks like a fun blog!

  • MrsKowski

    Congrats guys! This is amazing news xo

  • TeamJacobEdward

    Ihave to admit, I had a really weird reaction to this news.  I felt… sad.
     
    Yes.  SAD! 

    I know!  I was taken surprise by it myself.
     
    I couldn’t figure out why because, while I know that I didn’t watch Downtown Abbey or know of some of the other things “you kids are into these days”, it looks like a fun site.  And it’s a good thing that you’re doing this because there is so much Normal out there and who better to navigate those Normal waters than our beloved UC & Moon?  Besides, it means I’ll maybe have a chance to still converse with many of you LTTers I’ve come to know these past couple years.
     
    So why the hell did the news depress me when I read it this morning?
     
    Well, I lived through about 7 hours of meetings and having a lunch that consisted of quickly shoving my sandwich in my mouth in between a couple of them and now back at my desk.  So to let my mind take in the Data Overload I’d just went through today, I re-opened LTT.
     
    Still… sad…
     
    WTH?
     
    Then it came to me.  I’m sad because with the start of “That’s Normal” means the end of Twilight as it settles on it’s foundation as some fantastic fanatical thing of the past and in turn, LTT.  Because as you know, every beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.  (yep, I just did it.  I sentimentally quoted a bad, overplayed song) 
     
    Yes, yes, I know, you said you’ll still update.  And, yes, I know we’ve known this has been looming over us since BDI, but it was like the day you or your best friend moves away.  You say you’ll keep in touch and all that, but you know better.
     
    Very downtrodden?  Yes, I know.  But it’s Monday and every Monday in my world is “firefighting day” which means “The Sky is FALLING!” in every corner of it.

    So today, my Twilight-loving sky is falling with this GREAT announcement.

    Tomorrow, I’ll be excited as I should be.

    • BrookeLockart

      @TeamJacobEdward:disqus I’m sad that you are sad, but this will really give you an opportunity to learn all about the other fun stuff out there. No, it’s not the same, but at least now you now that the snark lives on beyond this site and the end of BD2.  HUGS!

      • TeamJacobEdward

        Thanks Brooke.

        You’re right, a snarky world is a happy world.  And who better than the likes of LTTers to keep it going, spreading into all sorts of Normal snarkiness with no boundaries of specific topics?  No one, that’s who.  (Hmmm, the possibilities are endless.)

        I’m sure I’ll love “That’s Normal”  I mean, I DO have a “That’s Normal” t-shirt, so I’m all about the Normal.

        Okay.  I’ll stop my foot-stomping tempertantrum now.  :)  And I’ve now bookmarked TN on my phone.

        Stay snarky girls.

    • Sisterpenguin

      Ah, my sweet baboo *multiple digital hugs*…

      Be of good cheer and see TN as an four room extension to our house of fun (with hot tub)

      • TeamJacobEdward

        Aw, thx SP.  I think I just needed to grieve a little.  I <3 this place but I'm sure I'll love the hot tub… scoot over, I'm coming in.

  • http://www.talksupe.wordpress.com snowwhitedrifted

    Yay!! Very cool!

  • Venom

    This is cool and I’m looking forward to the new normal. Is it normal that I don’t understand why Ryan Gosling is hot?

  • Bubs

    I feel I’m going to get lost with TN as I don’t Twit. Can’t understand Tumblr and never heard of Google+ [should I google that ?]. OK I’m a chance on Facebook.

    However, quite often the stories/shows/characters you mention are mainly only shown in the US [and may or maynot be shown in other countries]. The beauty of Twi.is, we all know the characters. Please don’t forget we little people……

    • Sisterpenguin

      That’s very true but then we get to hear about new and fun stuff, sometimes before the other folks around us (that happened with me and Shiver and Warm Bodies and 50 Shades “You do know it’s originally a fan fic….?”)

      • Bubs

        Yeah-“fun stuff” SO true. I guess it’s more the TV shows n actors [that we then have to Google] if we haven’t seen them. It’s hard to get into the “groove” of conversations if one hasn’t had the “visual”-well, that’s how I feel.

        I LOVE THIS SITE SO MUCH- I WANT TO STAY IN THE GROOVE !!!!!

        You’re such an intelligent funny witty bunch of contributors….I was going to say “girls ” instead of “contributors” but we can’t leave out KStew Boy.

  • http://letterstokristen.wordpress.com/ KStewBoy

    Ahhh… can you smell that?  That’s the smell of blogging freedom.  Breath it in… Moon and UC in a blogosphere without borders or limits.  That’s Normal and That’s Exciting!  I’m very excited.  But I’m also a little disappointed that TN didn’t stand for Titty Nipple.

    • Sisterpenguin

      Or Tiny Nuts

      • Venom

        Or tiny titty nipple nuts.

        • Venom

          So I added some shit in the acronym. It’s July 4th and I’m drinking. That’s normal right? Ah, who cares…

          • http://letterstokristen.wordpress.com/ KStewBoy

            Drinking and posting is totally normal.  And on Friday’s it’s Totally Normal to drink and post at work. That’s on my calendar for tomorrow.

  • Alice_NaA

    This is such great news! I really need to hear you guys discussing all things important in life (not just twilight). I need to feel normal! 

  • Venom

    Ok so I see this bright future with a badass blog that beats the shit outa Ted C. And Perez and anyone else(not that i read that stuff-i’m so sure!) but Who else has the Shiz to make that happen? It’s so obvious!:-) yay. It’s about time. The world doesn’t even know what’s about to hit it! Mmmmkay so I’m optimistic, what? I’m totally right and that is just normal, people.

    • Venom

      Oh wait ur stuff has already beat the shit outa everything so from here it’s pretty much gravy. Never mind. Carry on!
